Just so it doesn't seem like Vladimir is alone in this problem, we're
in the same boat. We wrote the Commercial Port Advocacy Howto (CPAH,
http://www.seul.org/pub/howto/cpah.html) many months ago, and even
put it in the format that the LDP wanted. The LDP fellow said it would
work best as a mini-howto, and we said "ok, whatever you think best",
and then he stopped answering mail.

I believe there are dozens of good howto's out there that have had this
same problem.
Perhaps the oswg should start collecting them. :)
